Possible the smell is coming from the bacteria living on your ac evapourator. You can buy a spray for this that you set off inside the vehicle. Follow the instructions on the tin.

The jiggle method is not enough you have to look at the wires. I just did and I found out that all six wires were broken close to the splice. That splice is located close to the back seat.

Hope it hepls.

Camry code 1780

This is a problem in the Park/Neutral position switch or wiring.

Apparently Camrys of your vintage often suffer chafing and breakage of the wiring around the rear trunk lid hinge, driver's side. The backup light conductor there chafes and breaks, which the ECU sees as a fault P1780.

Its not designed to drain.

How do you replace shocks on 1991 buick skylark

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Fig. 1: After you open the trunk lid, use a suitable prytool to remove the trim cover 86888036.jpg
Fig. 2: Some vehicles have a cover which must be removed to access the shock retaining nuts 86888037.jpg
Fig. 3: Unfasten the upper shock attaching nuts 86888038.jpg
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Open the trunk lid and remove the trim cover. If equipped, remove the nut cover.
  3. Remove the upper shock attaching nut(s). If removing both shocks, remove one at a time.
  4. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  5. Unfasten the lower shock absorber mounting bolts. One wrench will have to be placed on the bolt head side to retain the bolt as you loosen the nut. Usually a 15mm wrench is used to remove them. To install: Fig. 4: After the vehicle is raised and safely supported, use a socket to unfasten the lower retaining bolt 86888039.jpg
    Fig. 5: Remove the retaining bolt, then . . . 86888040.jpg
    Fig. 6: . . . remove the shock absorber assembly from the vehicle 86888041.jpg
  6. Connect the shock absorbers at the lower attachment and install the attaching bolt.
  7. Lower the vehicle enough to guide the shock absorber upper stud through the body opening, then fasten the upper shock absorber attaching nut loosely. Tighten the lower shock absorber mounting bolt to 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm).
  8. Remove the axle support, then carefully lower the vehicle. Tighten the shock absorber upper nut to 21 ft. lbs. (29 Nm).
  9. If equipped, install the retaining nut cover, then install the rear trim cover. Close the trunk lid.
  10. Connect the negative battery cable.

My Boxter battery is dead and I am not able open the trunk lid.

I have had this occur before. After I called AAA they showed me what I was doing wrong. The diagram in the book dose not show the correct place to ground the cable. It shows that you should attach to a door latch near the rear of the car. Acutally, you need to ground the cable by attaching to the door hinge. Hope that helps.
